That fateful meeting took place in 1949; and Ray not only got out of Portland in a jiff, but made it in a big way in showbiz as well. At last count, Ray's rendering of his hit tune Cry had sold more than 21 Vz million records. Ray appears at Le Stage Supper Club at La Diligence, Sept. 18 to 21. Downstairs at La Diligence, the sparkling Fats Waller musical revue Ain't Misbehavin is now into its fifth month and shows no signs of slowing down. The dynamic quartet of Ranee Lee, Michelle Sweeney, Dorian Joe Clark and Anthony Sherwood blend effortlessly and wondrously on harmonies as well as hoofin' routines. In all, 31 memorable Waller classics, including the title tune as well as Honeysuckle Rose and It's a Sin to Tell a Lie, are hissed, cooed, belted and boomed to the rocksteady piano accompaniment of Ari Snyder. The curtain rises at 8:45 p.m., Thursdays to Sundays. Back by popular demand at the Portage in the Bonaventure Hilton is Area Code, the high-energy funk-and-soul combo from New York City. The group performs Tuesdays through Saturdays until Sept. 13. Cover charge is $6 on weekdays, $8 . on weekends. Celtic music fans, take note. The NIGHTSPOTS Roundup of the club scene i -.

Together, the duo dish up a vibrant and unique blend of Scottish and American folk music. The Chateau Champlain Hotel will hold the Festival Gastronomi-que Francais, Sept. 11 to 28 at its Le Neufchatel restaurant. And who better to oversee the festivities than the master chef of French gastronomy, Pierre Por-tier, who makes his first visit to Canada? Portier is the ownerchef of the French 4-star restaurant La Gerbe de Ble and was dubbed "Meilleur Ouvrier-Cuisinier de France" (Best Chef in France) in 1979. And among the original delicacies rhef Portier will be ladling out are "Le Grenadin de Loup de mer a la Gauloisc," "Les Aiguillettes do canard nu micl et au gingembre" and "La Rognonnade de veau en crepinette." Gourmands can call the Chateau Champlain for reservations. Norm MacDonald, one of this country's hottest comics and a big hit at the recent Just for Laughs fest, comes to the Comedy Nest, Sept. 11 to 14. At the latter event, MacDonald proved Canadian content wasn't a cultural curse as he showed plenty of savvy in weaving a piquant political sketch of Mulf oney, Turner and Broadbent in a Grade 2 arithmetic class. He also explained why NASA chose Canadian Marc Garneau for the space shuttle: "They needed a subject for their motion-sickness study, and it was either a Canadian or a chimp." Meanwhile, another crazy Canuck, Craig "Frenchie" McFarlane, takes to the Comedy Nest stage this weekend. Showtimes are 9 and 11:15 p.m. tonight and tomorrow evening and 8:30 on Sunday. In the Refreshing Rock Group Title Department: Jump in the Pool is set to paddle and crawl at Station 10 the bar tonight and tomorrow evening. Management favorably compares the music of this Montreal East-based quartet to that of BronskiBeat. Incidentally, Station 10 is presenting the Sunday Night Comedy Second Anniversary Show, Sept. 14 at 9 p.m. And for a mere $2 admission charge, you can take in such talents as The Wackies, Dr. Trinidad and the one and only Alistair McAlistair. . An insider's view of the music world By ERUCE BAILEY Gazette Film Critic , Just in case we can't figure it out all by our little selves, rock superstar Sting (formerly of The Police) tells us from inside Bring on the Night what's so special about Bring . on the Night. There are lots of "rocumentaries" about bands in their last days (among them Let It Be, Last Waltz); even more about pop stars at their peak. But Bring On the Night offers something different a record of a band getting their act together for their first gig. Of course, this is not just any band. The film probably wouldn't have been made if the seven-member ensemble weren't headed by one REVIEW' BRING ON THE NIGHT Cinema Outremont A documentary directed by Michael Apted; (tarring Sting, Branford Marsali; screenings today and tomorrow, Sept. 12, 13, 19, 26, Oct. 3. of the biggest names in the music biz. And it didn't hurt their public profile any when the group later, managed to boost its word-of-mouth success with the release of the hit album, Dream of the Blue Turtles. Still, they might have had trouble getting distribution if it weren't for the clout of director Miehael Apted (Coal Miner's Daughter) behind it. But however the film got made and finally circulated to a Montreal repertory house we can be glad it's here. A good part of the film is giverl over to the nine days of rehearsal on I the super-elegant premises of the" ; Chateau do Courson in France. B bringing together top jazz musicians and blending their style with his own J artistic vision, Sting hopes to do something about the sad state of, rock 'n' roll: "Pop music is dead; it'J reactionary and racist," the one-time,1 school teacher asserts in the course. of a monologue that's unusually thoughtful by rock 'n' roll standards. He doesn't actually end up revolu tionizing the music world; after all7 there's nothing all that new abou "fusion" jazz and Sting's lyrics are not exactly pop music's answer ta Das Kapital. ; J i war m&t , i ft , f aarcAstMki CHAMPLAiN N.V.

As he cuts the umbilical; cord and sheds a tear or two, we get the distinct impression that the experience of seeing his son, Jake, for the; first time means at least as much to; him as the Birth of the Blues. ' Jake, incidentally, just happened to come into the world on the second day of the band's debut concert sc ries. Someday, perhaps, we'll get to ask Jake what it's like to start life as a symbol.
